Marbled Background Using Ink Refills & Shaving Cream

It's time to get messy and create some gorgeous backgrounds with our ink refills and some foamy shaving cream! I love making this papers and there are unlimited color combinations. This first card is our featured project on the tutorial, but I've included photos of additional projects as well.

The Coastal Cabana card stock is cut 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". The Pacific Point card stock is cut 5-1/4" x 4". The Whisper White card stock is cut 5" x 3-3/4". I used Pacific Point, Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green ink refills. The sentiment is from the Ridiculously Awesome stamp set #152512. I used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies #149638 to stamp the sentiment in Pacific Point ink. The ribbon is from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack #152468.

This next card uses the Press On stamp se t#153392. The Cinnamon Cider card stock is 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". The Early Espresso card stock is 4-5/8" x 3-1/4". I used the Stitched Rectangle dies #151820 for the marbled Whisper White card stock. For the ink colors, I used Early Espresso, Cinnamon Cider and Crumb Cake.

For this card, I used the Ridiculously Awesome stamp set. The Whisper White card base is 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". The layer of Pumpkin Pie card stock is 5-1/2" x 3-1/4" and the layer of Magenta Madness card stock is 5-1/2" x 3". I used the Stitched Be Mine dies #151814. The sentiment is heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. The ink colors are Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Magenta Madness.

For this last card, I used the same ink colors and stamp set as shown above. The Crushed Curry card base is 8-1/2" X 5-1/2". The Basic Black card stock is 5-1/8" x 3-7/8". The marbled piece is 5" x 3-3/4". I used Memento ink to stamp the sentiment.
